Pav’s Creamery in Akron: An Ice Cream Cult Classic

Pav’s Creamery in Akron: An Ice Cream Cult Classic

A few weeks ago, the discovery of Pav’s Creamery in Portage Lakes threw a curveball to my carefully curated lineup of Canton ice cream favorites. I was all set, really: there’s Milk & Honey {a Canton classic, and what they do, they do SO well}, Handel’s {a million flavors, including the out-of-this-world ‘Red Skies at Night’ – black raspberry with chocolate chunks}, and Almost Heaven {their house specialty is killer homemade butter pecan}.… Read More

Taste of Canton – May 21 & 22, 2014

Taste of Canton – May 21 & 22, 2014

Things only get better with age, right? Well, The Taste of Canton is no exception. In its 6th year, Taste has more vendors, locally-loved entertainment and a fantastic atmosphere than ever before. Nothing else makes me as immeasurably happy as food and drink in the sunshine, and I'm sure the same goes for you. If that's true, this is the kickoff to our joyous, beloved season of festivals. To make this kickoff even sweeter, I have $15 to give someone for the Taste of Canton... more on that in a bit. Read More... Read More

Market District – Gourmet Grocery in Green, Ohio

Market District – Gourmet Grocery in Green, Ohio

Not only will you find your grocery staples in the old Giant Eagle, but now the updated facility offers cafes, microbrews, made-to-order sushi and pho, in-store cooking demonstrations, free samples, a wine bar, EVENTS and LIVE MUSIC.… Read More

Eat Local: The Rail in Canton, Ohio

Eat Local: The Rail in Canton, Ohio

Canton has its share of dining gems, but they’re often tucked away in our city’s nooks and crannies – off the beaten path or scattered on street corners in the downtown district.

So when word spread that local restaurateur Mike Mariola was opening his third location of the RAIL at Belden Village Mall – ground zero for chain restaurants and big-name retailers – I CHEERED at the news…and an entire contingent of local foodies cheered along with me.… Read More

First Amendment Public House: Good Food & Free Speech in Wooster, Ohio

First Amendment Public House: Good Food & Free Speech in Wooster, Ohio

When our family wants to venture outside of everyday territory for an outing, we love to make a short jaunt to Wooster, Ohio. It's a surprisingly hip town about 30 minutes west of Canton, surrounded by Ohio's rolling farmland on all sides (including the 'gateway' to Amish Country to the south) and - I'll be honest - not much else.

Cleveland Eats: Crop Bistro Ohio City

Cleveland Eats: Crop Bistro Ohio City

Last Friday, Lisa and I went on an ultra-rare, non-work-related day trip to the C-L-E. (#FridayFunday? …no, please no. Forget I typed that.) We both love a good meal out, modern art, and Cleveland, so the combo of the three – and a ‘press’ invite to preview some new art installations – was compelling enough for us to take a half a day off of work.… Read More
